Citrix works with Google to deliver business-critical Windows apps to Google Chromebooks. The adoption of fast-growing Chromebooks included many of the largest corporate realities, which are considering the transition to new and platforms. One of the main needs of these organizations is to provide users with access anywhere and at any time to critical business Windows apps, such as HR, finance and sales management applications. Chomebooks for Business combined with the Citrix XenApp virtual app spreading solution and Citrix Receiver for HTML5, allows customers to distribute any type of Windows app with the high-definition Citrix HDX technology user experience and operational scalability for the large organizations. In addition to ensuring the distribution of apps, Citrix adds collaboration support with the recent announcement of GoToMeeting Free, a web-based application that offers a simple and fast video conferencing function for Chromebooks users, as well as enabling a mobile workspace solution in Chrome environment. "Companies are systematically adopting Google Chromebooks as a cheap and easy-to-use alternative to traditional computing platforms. Citrix and Google have been working together since 2010 to ensure customers have access to apps for enterprise-critical Windows in a Chrome environment. The approaching end of the Windows XP lifecycle offers an extraordinary opportunity for every type of company to reconsider its approach to processing and the transition to Chromebooks to improve manageability, security and affordability, "said Amit Singh, President of Google Enterprise.

?Applications remain the foundation of what business users need to do their business. Citrix has always been at the forefront in enabling technologies for the secure distribution of applications to users, regardless of the type of device in use and wherever they are. With the growing acceptance of new computing platforms, such as Chrome, in the enterprise world, we offer Chromebooks users the ability to access these business-critical apps anywhere, anytime. We expect a very bright future for Google and Citrix in the enterprise world, "said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, SVP and GM, Citrix Enterprise and Service Provider Division.
